YR01817 Portable Ammonium Ion Meters

These portable meters, available in a variety of models, differ especially in their ammonium ion concentration range. Depending on the model, the range can vary from 5 x 10-6 at 1 M, and from 0.1 to 18000 ppm for the YR01817 model, to 1 x 10-7 at 1 M, and from 0.01 to 107900 ppm for the YR01817-7. Their accuracy is guaranteed with a deviation of ± 0.5% to ± 1% FS. https://kalstein.pl/product/portable-ion-meter-yr01817-yr01817-15/

All models offer a resolution of 0.001, 0.01, 0.1,1 and the possibility to configure from 2 to 5 calibration points. Units of measurement are available in ppm, mg/L, mol/L, and mmol/L, giving users multiple options for their measurements.

YR01816 Handheld pH/ion Meter

For those who need precise pH control along with ion measurement, the YR01816 portable pH/ion meter is an excellent choice. It allows a pH range of -2,000 to 20,000 pH with a selectable resolution of 0.001, 0.01, 0.1 pH. It provides unmatched accuracy with an accuracy of ± 0.002 pH. For calibration, 1 to 5 points can be configured, with options to use U.S. pH buffer, NIST, DIN, and two custom buffers. https://kalstein.pl/product/yr01816-portable-ph-ion-meter/

The YR01816 pH meter, on the other hand, is for those looking for a solution for pH measurement along with ion measurement. Its feature highlights in its high accuracy and pH measurement capability.

Analysis of common features and technical differences

All Kalstein meters are designed with high standards in mind, ensuring accurate and reliable measurements. They share a high level of accuracy, a robust calibration system, and versatility in units of measurement.

The most notable difference between the ammonium ion meter models is in their ion concentration ranges. This means that users can choose a specific model that best suits their specific requirements, allowing for greater measurement accuracy. The YR01817 meters are designed to have wider ion concentration ranges, while the YR01816-1 models are focused on providing extremely accurate measurements over a narrower spectrum.
